Come join us for a night of country blues & ragtime, neo-folk and classic country & folk. This will be an all acoustic show in the intimate setting of Hobo Woodworks in East Van...


The Burying ground
The Burying Ground is an upbeat blues string band that brings the fire of punk to the technical prowess and distinct sounds of such early blues, country and jazz masters as Blind Blake, Bessie Smith, Gary Davis, Memphis Minnie, Big Bill Broonzy, Jimmie Rodgers and many others.

If you’ve ever woken up in the morning and your first thought was a song, you’ll understand something of the devotional quality that drives their music. Woody’s complex blues guitar and rags are punctuated and raised high by Devora’s tightly syncopated washboard, with playful rolls and staccato jumps and stops.

The Crooked
East Vancouver based folk-noir duo; Joshua Wood and Thalia Couture, bring you tales of woe and love, captured within haunting melodies and body swaying rhythm.

Dan Challis
Australian songwriter Dan Challis shares his story through unfiltered moments; exploring the light, the shade, and the roughness of being to the rustic sounds of classic American folk. Rich with punchy, understated folk hooks and see-sawing textures of outlaw country, Dan’s songs have a vulnerability and rawness that have seen him riding local airwaves in his hometown of Brisbane and earned him a following in dive-bars across New York City, since spending time there last year. Dan released his debut album 'Strong Man' this year, and is slowly establishing himself as a songwriter here in Canada.
